TRAINING OF TRAINERS COURSE.
Supported by its existing partners, Vijana Amani Pamoja, VAP conducted a refresher course for its peer educators with an aim of building the capacity of their program delivery. The training was attended by 15 peer educators and 5 volunteers who gathered at the Kiragu community social hall. The trainings commenced on 26th of May to 28th may 2010 with .Amongst the topics covered were: HIV/AIDS biology that was meant to instil more theoretical knowledge about HIV/AIDS to the peer educators and volunteers.Additionally, all attendees were taken through HIV/AIDS related activities that are in the revised curriculum as a refresher to make sure everybody including the volunteers are at par with the newly revised curriculum that contains 10 sessions.”After having gone through the HIV/AIDS biology session and understanding the activities of the newly revised curriculum, am now fully equipped to go out and make a difference in the lives of the youth out there
GLOBAL GIVING IN ATTENDANCE
The attendance of Mr. John Hecklinger a Global Giving staff from Washington DC was a real boost to VAP and the entire training as he also had a chance to have a firsthand witness of what VAP is doing to the community.”I want to congratulate VAP for what it’s doing to impact and change the lives of its community. This is truly a good example of what Global Giving is looking for to support grassroots organizations that are really touching and changing the lives of its citizens.”Said John Hecklinger, chief program officer from Global Giving.
Upon the completion of the three day training, all the participants were awarded with certificates that empowered them to become peer educators and go out and teach others. As usual the main focus of the curriculum is to target youth aged; 12-20 years both boys and girls who are infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. Fresh from the trainings VAP is targeting to graduate 2,500 youth by the end of 2010.These youth will go through the entire curriculum and upon the completion they will be awarded certificates that would empower them to reach out to thousands more through formal and informal educational sessions.”I believe that we are all set not only as peer educators but also as changers makers and in this case i want to thank all the partners and individuals who have been donating through global giving for their enormous support. Even as we are earmarked to our achieving our goals, we believe your continuous support will make it a reality and a big success.”Said Nancy Waweru, project Director, Vijana Amani Pamoja.
